Pheonecia Reborn?

Blacksmith published a post under this title with a an interesting map. My comment about the map and its relation to the future of the Middle East and beyond it:

I actually think that you can use this map very practically to predict where the next trouble will come from. Its like seeing tectonic plates with arrows indicating whether they are moving towards each other or are going to split. It gives one visually a very good idea along which tectonic lines the future earthquakes would strike.

One of the things, that catch attention when exploring this map, is that some countries not only shrink or expand, but move. Iran for example moves to the east by ceding territory to the Arabs, Kurds and Azeries, while incorporating areas in and around Herat in Afganistan.
